Day 2

  
Hello my gorgeous rockstars! Day 2 of 3 days and 3 quotes… Today I am going to pass this challenge on to three other badass bloggers without all the rules, just share some quotes that mean something to you- if you want- no pressure :))

The quote with Jax Teller below really spoke to me- not sure if it was Kurt or one of the other writers from SOA, but I read it and was like bam! How true it is that when I am broken I do not feel strong- in the midst of hurt I feel sad and weak and tired. Many of my experiences hang like a loose earring to my heart-they are there but too painful to wear completely.  When I do embrace these hurtful memories I can break again-and fast-but it is the comfort of family, friends, strangers-that act as a cushion to my fall.  Their love keeps me strong when I am not. Their love inspires me to continue to believe and not give up.

YOU are a part of that love and cushion, thank you! I know, believe me I do, that life can be super hard. Hard like slamming the pavement and we are down there wondering how on earth we will stand back up-let alone walk again.

When I was little I remember playing with my dolls and dreaming of being a mother one day-oh how simple things seemed.  I never ever imagined I would be wailing over my daughter’s casket, I never imagined I would be rescuing my children from the angry chains of an abusive marriage.  I have no answers, not even the ones I seek-but I do have love, I do still believe I will find my happiness in my heart. I believe, even though my life continues to unravel from how I attempt to plan it, I believe there is light and hope and love in store for me and for all of you too.

And I LOVE YOU ALL! So see, there is some love already in your day today :))

We are the Midnight 

   
We are the midnight 

Crouching in hopes cobwebbed corner 

Sending kisses on trains to eachother 

Spreading dreams like whistles 

Calling them stealthily home 

We are the unsuspected believers

To boost and carry on for the one        …and for all the others

Grown up from sawed off roots

Making yellow from our blues 

Lifting soul songs to the night sky 

Praying for a star to carry the message 

Whilst passing us by 

It is our dark and we have blessed it 

While the rest sleep 

We write faith into their eyes 

Yes…

…We are the Midnight… 

  
 

Inspired

I find inspiration every day from each of you, this place has been so healing for me- just sayin—> thank you!

I picked some inspiring quotes from Abraham Hicks that I wanted to share for my inspiration tonight.

Also please please check out Eric Ease. He really pumped me up today with his determination to “make a decision each day to move forward”. He helped remind me that it is OK to be good to ourselves even when others slam us for it. He is courageous, encouraging and a powerhouse of strength-thank you Ease. 

Today I choose to love my messy self 

   
     

My Light 

She sits with her back to me

On the edge of our memories
She knows I am close 
It’s the bond of our blended souls 
Her hair sweeps over her shoulder
She is the sunshine for our summer 
All the pasts of darkness 
Worked through gravestones to 
dig and bury us
Yet even in between rock and mortar 
Light will always break asunder 
And now I pause and watch her
My fairy winged angel
With a raw fleshed halo 
For generations 
We have clung together 
She saved my life 
Volunteering for the front lines 
Demanding to take the fall for us 
My sweet sweet breath of existence 
It is in you I find 
My eternal light. 

I got you babe 



Our love is like diamonds 
Blasting light through floors and ceilings 
I’ve got your back 
I’m under your shield 
Barefoot on the beach 
Scars revealed 
You said I make beautiful look ugly
Words capture and transform me
There’s a spot on my ankle
Reserved for your name 
Gods whistled and blew 
Powerfully thrusting oceans to move 
The miracle to find 
The you in me and the me in you 
Webster in all his genius
Can’t come close to defining us
Beyond existence 
Beyond reason 
My heart is yours no question 
We collided 
And the cosmos went, oh shit! 
Promises inked around my wrist 
Tattooed in permanence 
Nothing will ever erase this 
Know you are adored and safe 
Because I got you
I got you babe 

Burned



And in a snap 

Trust is burned to death 
A smolder of rust
From fragile hands 
Reaching for straws  
To regrow the charred grass 
But the fire restarts 
With a flash
A burst of charcoaled truth 
When I view you 
Striking a fuse, splitting vows in two  
And here I remain 
Outside your window
Getting slammed by pain 
Chunks of heart break off
Slipping down the gutters drain 
Why I seem
To never learn this lesson
Bulldozed by lies careful construction
Trust is impossible to grasp
When you’ve tied my feet
And sawed off my hands 

Silly Boys 

 

Silly boys 
Play games 
Not with toys
With me
Are they oblivious?
Are they serious?
The bell has rung
Oh goodie! It’s my turn 
“One man please!”
-The last one just left 
-But we’ve plenty of boys ma’am 
“No and no thanks” 
I’ve been up to my breasts
In one liners, immature negotiators, 
Lust takers masked as matured lovers 
and honey I can tell you
Age ain’t nothin but a number
He’s either a man or still a boy at 37
Promise breakers, mamas boys
Aww…did you forget your bottle?
-Wait my laundry..is still at mommies
Fold please?
No and no thanks 
Hmm…what about her?
Yeah that little sweetface over there
The one with the subtle curls
It’s been a long time
But there are no laws in attraction
Right?
The quilt I’ve made from boys 
Is frozen and dead
I just want some good love
I’ll take her hand instead
